Had a bar lunch here with my daughter. Food was very good and delighted to find good cask ale in Shetland. Who would have thought teriyaki would work with skate wings? Lovely. Cask ales from Lerwick Brewery.

Stayed whilst on a business trip. Good bedroom and very nice bathroom. Friendly staff and excellent food. It's only a 15 minute drive from Lerwick and the view as you come down the hill into Scalloway is gorgeous.

lovely location with parking on the road outside, food was local and good quality with good seafood, service was great. On the westside of the island so visiting requires a car but well worth the visit.

I don't want to turn this in to war and peace but having stayed in 3 of the 4 big hotels in Lerwick I have to say this place is head and shoulders above them all in every way. Staff are fantastic, hospitable and nothing is too much trouble. Food is good honest pub and restaurant

Beautiful hotel with friendl staff. We were a large group and all the food came out together as we had preordered. Not one complaint from anyone regarding food or service. I would definitely recommend this place.

Scalloway Harbour
I’d like to come for the Up Helly Aa If I have a hire car will I be able to drive/park in or near Lerwick?
Hi Katrina. Parking in Lerwick is restricted on UP Helly Aa day itself, as all the streets around where the procession and galley burning take place, are strictly no parking zones. However, if you don't mind a walk, you can easily find somewhere to leave your car. It is not possible to pre-book a parking space in town. If you are going to enjoy the festival to the full, we would suggest you try to secure tickets to visit one of the halls after the procession, in which case you would be better leaving your car in Scalloway and getting a taxi, as the festivities go on all night!!

Hi there. I can't think of any trials which would be held in an area you could walk to, but I will make some enquiries and get back to you. The nearest bus stop is just a few minutes' walk from the hotel.

"Room 201 faces the harbour."
"Book early."
"Harbour views on top floor are best (2nd floor with British counting: ground floor, first floor, second floor). NB No elevator but porterage"
"Ask if a sea view is available"
"Our room at the top offered good views over the harbour and bay"
